If you've seen this post before then I apologize but I'm really excited about it.
I was walking through the show today looking for a WWI era 1903 Springfield when there is was - a first model Schofield with an untouched barrel and all the markings - serial number 2305 with the US on the grip, and L and P under the barrel and an L on the frame. There also may be a L on the cylinder but it is hard to see. It's obviously not perfect and is missing some parts but with only 3000 made I had to have it -
The bad news is that's it's missing the ejector, latch spring and mainspring among other things and I can't get the darn grips off - they are tight but the screw just turns without tightening or loosening anything. The good news is that the revolver only cost me $1250 ! I haven't seen any original Schofield even close to this cheap ever and to get one with the original uncut barrel? I'm happier than a pig in slop. I don't know if I'll be able to find the parts but I got plenty of time to look. Thank you for looking and if anyone knows of someone with Schofield parts I'd love to hear about it.
